I will host a special weekend edition of the program today, live from to 6 to 9 PM EST, which will feature guest including Claudia Rosett, Frank Gaffney, and assorted others plus late breaking news from Israel. You can listen online via the KRLA website as well. Or via the Twin Cities’ The Patriot, AM 1280, where you can also hear Northern Alliance Radio

And be sure to stop by the site of American Friends of Magen Daved Adom.

You can contribute to this humanitarian organization online here.

Frequent updates at Haaretz, The Daily Star, and PajamasMedia, Riehl World View, LebaneseBlogs, IsraellyCool, and Yoni’s Blog.

And the ever-efficient TruthLaidBear has an aggregator page up featuring on-topic posts from across the blogosphere. It is extraordinary.

From the pessimistic Beirut Notes:

What Comes Next?

Israel will not be able to destroy Hezbollah, because the Shiite Party of God has more than one million supporters in Lebanon. Even if Israel kills Hassan Nasrallah, there are thousands more that are willing to take his place.

The Hezbollah guerillas are willing to die for their cause and they are able to hurt Israel with their long range missiles. They will never give up the Israeli soldiers they kidnapped nor will they ever lay down their weapons.

The current war will probably end when Israel creates a 20 km “security zone” within Lebanon and then go into negotiations to free its soldiers. But the danger to Lebanon will come after that.

What will happen next is the break up of the national dialogue and that of Lebanon, the return of the civil war or a pro-Syrian and Iranian take over of Lebanon.

Weapons are in the hands of Hezbollah and their Lebanese and Palestinian allies and in those of the Lebanese army that will break up in case of any sectarian conflict.

Therefore the balance of power within Lebanon is totally in favour of Hezbollah and its allies.

In that respect the free, democratic and prosperous Lebanon that we dreamt about on 14 March 2005 was just that…a dream.

Instead the Islamic Republic of Lebanon will rise…unless both the regimes of Syria and Iran fall or unless a just and lasting peace occurs in the Middle East.
